Plan to Vote in November? Register by Oct. 9
Voters may register or pick up an absent voter ballot application at their town or city hall.
The deadline to register to vote in the Nov. 6 general election is just around the corner.
Greater West Bloomfield area residents have until Oct. 9 to register at their area clerk's office, the county clerk's office or any Secretary of State office or by mail. In order to vote, you must be:
- 18 years or older on or before election day
- A citizen of the U.S.
- An area resident for at least 30 days
Don't forget: If you have recently moved to town, make sure you re-register in town. If you've moved within the city, the clerk's office will handle the change. All Michigan voters must use the same residential address for voter registration and their driver's license.
Those who aren't able to go to the polls on election day may cast an absentee ballot. You may apply for an absentee ballot at the clerk's office by mail, fax or request an application by phone or email.
A ballot will be mailed to you immediately, though if you want your ballot mailed, you must submit your application by 2 p.m. the Saturday before the election.
All absentee ballots must be returned to the clerk's office by 8 p.m. on election day.
